Strategies For Dealing With Beeswax
Dealing with beeswax could be a fun and rewarding experience, in addition to provide safe and all sorts of-natural options to otherwise contaminant-filled items that we use every single day! Below are great tips for dealing with beeswax to obtain the most from all your DIY beeswax projects!
Kinds of Beeswax
You might have already observed that natural beeswax is available in a multitude of different colors. Thing about this variation is a result of the amount of time wax spends within the hive or perhaps from what part of the hive the wax was harvested. However, if you are wax includes a greyish-brown tint into it, chances are the product continues to be minimally filtered but still contains some impurities. Better yellow waxes however have most likely been filtered 2 or 3 occasions. (These are typically a little more costly compared to brown less filtered varieties.) In case your beeswax is white-colored, which means either all the pollen continues to be removed through filtering or even the wax continues to be bleached to get rid of the yellow colour of the pollen.
Before you begin melting or else dealing with beeswax, cover your surfaces. Butcher paper can be useful for countertops. To safeguard the ground, lay lower newspaper or perhaps a painter’s tarp. Also, keep in mind that any tools which touch the wax will probably be permanently coated by using it. Because of this, you’ll wish to designate products that are particularly for dealing with beeswax and little else.
Mind the Temperature
When heating beeswax, you will need to achieve this inside a double boiler to avoid the wax from burning. Also, melt your beeswax gradually and steer clear of ‘over-cooking’ it to avoid damaging or discoloring the wax. Also make sure to put on mitts when flowing molten wax because it is very difficult to wash from skin and can lead to serious burns.
How To Locate Beeswax
You are able to get beeswax from local bee maqui berry farmers in your town. Should you can’t look for a local supplier, you may also grab a bag of natural beeswax pellets here or try these hands put beeswax bars for all your DIY beeswax crafting needs!

Keisha Charmaine: Thanks, video coming soon!
wes daniels: i have 4c hair and used murrys bees wax. they have a black version of the bees wax so it doesn't leave any clear residue if you live in a humid area. i sleep with my hair wrapped and have 3 dogs. i had an afro for about 8 months before i locked up and it took about a jar to achieve what i wanted
Sunchild1913: Never tried it prolly never will like u said it's just not needed
AlternativeFlyGal Jo: I know this one girl who allows someone to do her hair with beeswax and honey….I'm still floored.
Keisha Charmaine: How does her hair look?
AlternativeFlyGal Jo: +Keisha Charmaine it looks so cute! that's why I was surprised when she said it. but she has almost shoulder length, really small locs, almost the size of sisterlocs, and idk how her hair feels. I told my mom that the combination of what she's putting in her hair and the small size of her parts/locs would eventually cause the locs to weigh too much for her roots and cause thinning and breakage.
drpoetry1: Beeswax actually makes my hair look beautiful compared to sheabutter ( HATE it ), & coconut oil ( HATE it ). My hair looks, maintains, & FEELS much better with the beeswax than with any other hair product
Keisha Charmaine: drpoetry1 thanks for sharing!
Brooke Ebenezer: how do you remove lint or build up out the locs ? :/
Lola Rew: Brooke Ebenezer I read brushing locs helps with that.
MusicLoverGurl: Lint, you mostly just have to pick out with your fingers or a little comb. U saw someone who recommended doing it weekly, so it doesn't get buried in there. Build up can be removed with an apple cider vinegar rinse, but that also dries your hair out a LOT, so you don't want to do it regularly, and if you maintain your locs decently, wash your scalp regularly, you shouldn't NEED to do it too often.
Glenn Williams: they don't talk about no other hair style but dreads. that's powerful.
